The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) has said that it is ready to carry on nominations in Nakuru County scheduled for Tuesday 18. Addressing the media about the preparations ahead of the nominations, county party chairman Peter Ole Sono said the primaries will be held in 64 polling centers in Nakuru Eown East and Nakuru Town West constituencies, with each constituency having 32 polling centers.

Mr Sono said that the party in conjunction with security agencies had put adequate security measures in place to deal with any possible chaos that might arise during the exercise saying that each polling center will have enough security officers while other will be patrolling the two constituencies.

He called on both aspirants and their supporters to exercise utmost peace during the exercise which he promised will be free and fair, and asked whoever will lose in the nomination exercise to be ready to support those who will win for the good and prosperity of the party.

On the contentious issue of which register will be used during the nomination exercise, Sono said that all the aspirants had agreed that the party register be used during the exercise as opposed to the IEBC Register.

The party will not be holding nominations for the senate seat and the governor position since it issued a direct ticket for the senate position and will be supporting a Chama cha Mashinani candidate for the gubernatorial race.
